Hailey boys fire blanks in 1-0 loss

“Senior Night” with Jerome Tuesday

     They’ve allowed only three goals in the last five games, but Wood River High School boys’ soccer players have been stuck in neutral—winning only twice in the five games—because of a dormant offense.

     Held scoreless for the third time this season, Wood River (6-6-0, 4-4-0 for 12 points) lost 1-0 under the lights at Burley’s field Tuesday and continued their road struggles (2-5-0).

     Burley swept the Great Basin Conference season series with Wood River for the first time since 2007.

     “Burley scored in the 37th minute in the only breakaway they had all game,” said Wood River coach Luis Monjaras, whose varsity also fell at home to Burley 4-1 Sept. 11.

     “We could not produce any offense. We had plenty of control of the game but no spark to finish,” he said.

     The Wolverines (4-1-0 home) had a pivotal home game against Canyon Ridge (12-2-0, 6-2-0, 18 points) Thursday in Hailey. Wood River shocked the high-scoring Riverhawks 4-1 in Twin Falls Sept. 16.

     In other league action Tuesday, league-leading Jerome (10-1-0, 7-1-0, 21 points) avenged an earlier loss with a 3-1 win over Canyon Ridge at Twin Falls.

     So the Tigers, shooting for their third straight GBC tournament title and sixth in eight years, earned the upper hand in the regular-season campaign for the top tourney seed.

     Jerome visits Hailey Tuesday, Oct. 7 for Wolverine “Senior Night” festivities at 6:30 p.m. under the lights at Phil Homer Stadium football field.

     It’s a rematch of last year’s State 4A tourney title game. Jerome won the first meeting of the two teams 1-1 (5-4 shootout) Sept. 18.
